Jacob mentioned that Pidgin/libpurple badly needs a security audit (and
since Empathy's machinery is in libpurple, this would have a direct
benefit for Gnome). Maybe we could fundraise with that in mind.
Some random ideas:
* What would it take to have a Tor-ified session right from GDM?
* Should we have a desktop-wide "incognito mode"?
* Remember the old document, "Why Johnny can't encrypt"? How can we
make it really easy to have encrypted mail?
* Should the Gnome Foundation be able to issue certificates?
* Should we have a keyserver?
* Do we have something like HTTPS everywhere?
